Signs You Need to Clean Your Drains

It’s best to have your drains cleaned before an emergency happens. If you’re noticing any of the below signs or symptoms in your Santa Fe home, it’s probably time for a drain cleaning.

Slow drains. Have you noticed that it’s taking longer and longer for your bathtub, shower, or kitchen sink to drain? If so, there’s most likely a clog that’s preventing water from going down. In the bathroom, the culprit is frequently hair and soap scum buildup. In the kitchen, it’s often due to grease and food waste.

Unpleasant odors. Are there any foul or mysterious odors coming from your drains? It may be the smell of wastewater that isn’t draining all the way into your main sewer line. You could also have a blocked drain vent that isn’t allowing sewer gases to escape.

Gurgling sounds. After running the faucet or shower, if you hear a gurgling sound as the water drains, it’s likely that you have a clog in your main sewer line. The gurgling sound is a sign that there are sewer gases bubbling up in your drain line.

Frequent clogs. Is your shower frequently backed up? Or are you constantly having to deal with a clogged toilet? If you’re frequently dealing with stubborn drains— be it the laundry, bathroom, or kitchen— it’s a sign that you have a blockage in your main sewer line.

Multiple clogged drains. Do you have more than one clogged drain at a time? It’s very likely that your main sewer line is completely clogged. Call TLC’s trusted plumbing technicians to have the drain line cleared: (505) 471-0119.

Drain cleaning cost factors:

A few key factors will impact the cost of your drain cleaning service:

The severity of the clog. At TLC, we charge by the hour. For simple clogs that can be cleared with standard cabling, it will probably only take an hour. For more severe clogs, though, it could take several hours to clean. Especially if we need to use more heavy-duty equipment, such as hydro-jetting.

Accessibility. If your clog is in a hard-to-reach place, or if you need a video camera inspection in order to diagnose the source, it will take longer for our plumbers to access and clean. In this case, expect your costs to be higher.

Drain cleanouts. In order for our plumbers to access the main sewer line, it’s important that you have drain cleanouts installed. If you don’t have any installed yet, we may need to install them for you. Learn more in our blog, What are drain cleanouts and why do you need them?

Customer story in Santa Fe

Emergency drain clearing for a backed-up toilet? No problem for the plumbing pros at TLC

Problem: Patty C. needed an emergency drain clearing for her backed-up toilets. It was a Saturday and she was concerned about finding a plumber who could accommodate a weekend service appointment. After contacting TLC, she was relieved to know that we could dispatch a qualified plumber to her home within 30 minutes.

Solution: After calling her to confirm his arrival, TLC’s expert plumber, Russell, quickly diagnosed Patty’s plumbing problem, and soon discovered a clog within her main sewer line. After thoroughly cleaning out the clog, Russell was able to get Patty’s toilets flushing easily again. Now that all of her drains are flowing freely, Patty is happy to recommend TLC to Santa Fe homeowners looking for prompt and reliable plumbing service.


“We had clogged toilets and a backup on Saturday; called TLC and dispatch had Russell contact me within 10 minutes. He was here within half an hour and had things “flowing” in no time. Russell was very professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. Would definitely recommend this company.”
